Vancouver Skyline and Green BBQ Celebration - July 24th, 2007

Are you thinking ....it's getting nice outside and I want to go to a BBQ? Us too!

Join green-minded folks for some outdoor fun at our beautiful location of Jericho Park (northeast side of Jericho Pond : http://maps.google.ca/maps?ll=49.269379,-123.199084&spn=0.012756,0.028357&hl=en)

When: July 24th (rain or shine) from 6-9.30pm.

What to expect:

Free vegetarian food provided by Choices (http://www.choicesmarket.com/) and EarthSave (http://earthsave.org/) for the first 200 people

Free environmentally related goodies to help you be more green at home from MEC (http://www.mec.ca/) and Shoo-Foo bamboo towel collection (http://www.shoo-foo.com/).

Special prizes for the three individuals who travel the greatest distance to come to the BBQ using an environmentally friendly mode of travel (e.g. bicycle, rollerblade, jogging, walking). Let's try to make this a carbon neutral event!

Electric bikes to ride on

Electric cars to check out

Games like volleyball, soccer, bocce ball and croquet

A drumming workshop (we will provide drums and percussion instruments for the first 20 people)

Good conversation with friendly people who care about the environment

What you should bring:

Food to BBQ in case you don't get to Jericho Park in time for the free food

Your own plates, cups and utensils

Anything you can make noise with from home (e.g. pots and pans, home made shaker, Tupperware)

 How will you know who we are? We'll be wearing Green t-shirts!!

 

A friendly reminder: Make sure to take away everything you bring when you leave. We want to leave the area spotless!
